Carnival, football, samba!
South American circus, football fever and sizzling samba combine in this spectacular global phenomenon - fresh from a sell out tour of Australia and New Zealand.
Witness capoeira - the rare and beautiful Brazilian fusion of dance and martial arts - as its masters leap, flip and spin at breathtaking speed. Feel the carnival beats and be swept away on this incredible journey to the pulsating heart of Brazilian passion. Unstoppable rhythm, indescribable feats of acrobatics and a breathless display of football magic from the world champions of the beautiful game.
Accompanied by the stunning singers, dancers and musicians of Rhythm Carnival, Brazil's hottest samba band. A World Cup summer party for all. Ole! Ole! Ole!
'A cast of hunky South American men who ooze machismo charm with every abdominal flex, flirting shamelessly and shirtlessly between handstands and somersaults... a lot of fun!' (The Age)
'A heady combination of a ballet dancer's grace and soft stepping, combined with the raw power and muscled speed of thrilling acrobatic work, spinning, twisting and tumbling.' (The West Australian)
'Packed with muscle, backflips, blistering samba beats. A big hunk of upbeat Brazilian soul.' (Scotsman)
